Pursuing Justice For Accident Victims In Indiana

Driver crashes in accident on Interstate 70 in Indiana

Collisions don't always involve more than one vehicle. In some cases, it's defects or mechanical errors that lead to crashes. As such, those who survive these crashes but suffer injuries or the families of loved ones who have passed away should look into taking legal action against manufacturers or others who may have tampered with the vehicle.

For example, if a manufacturer creates a tire that blows under pressure when driving at a normal speed due to a defect in the tire wall, a family could pursue a claim against the manufacturer even if a crash doesn't involve more than one vehicle. This helps victims protect themselves against products that could harm them or the people they love. In cases where someone is killed, the family members may pursue a claim to regain financial losses.

In a case that took place in Indiana, a man crashed due to what investigators believe was a faulty tire. One person was killed in the crash on Interstate 70, according to the Nov. 20 news, when an RV crashed in the eastbound lanes. The crash, which happened at approximately 10:30 a.m., was allegedly caused by a defective front tire.

When the RV crashed, it was because the 77-year-old driver lost control of the vehicle. He was killed in the collision as the RV left the roadway and hit a guardrail. The man was thrown through the windshield.

Crashes like this shouldn't happen. While it's not known yet why the tire was defective, it's clear that with an appropriate tire and good maintenance, accidents like this wouldn't have to happen.
